DescriptionLearn the story of Prohibition in the United States, and hear about the nationwide ban on the sale, production, importation, and transportation of alcoholic beverages between 1920 and 1933. Led by rural Protestants and social Progressives in the Democratic and Republican parties, the dry movement was coordinated by the Anti-Saloon League and mandated under the 18th Amendment to the US Constitution. Many Americans resisted the move, and in cities such as New York, secret bars continued to operate, hidden from public view. Your guide will take you to some of the best-preserved of the 1920s hotspots, taking you back in time to the era of the Roaring '20s. Learn about the Volstead Act that defined the types of alcoholic beverages prohibited, and the local laws that were sometimes even more strict. Hear about the ratification of the 21st Amendment that repealed the 18th Amendment, and brought an end to Prohibition in December 1933.
